Pausing at Watertown, Mass., he joined the small band of Puritan settlers who set out through the wilderness to settle the new colony of Connecticut. He made a home for himself in 1636, at Wethersfield, on the west side of High street, facing the Common near the river. He was one of the earliest proprietors of Naubuc Farms in Glastonbury when it was first surveyed. Discontented with conditions here, he journeyed down to the new colony just planted at New Haven where he was enrolled among the first proprietors of New Haven Colony in 1639. In 1641, he moved from Wethersfield to Staimford, Conn., where he was deputy to the General Court at New Haven. In 1644, he moved over with the first settlers of Hempstead, Long Island, N. Y., where he soon became one of the most influential and largest land proprietors. He was a "schepen," or Dutch magistrate under Governor Stuyveseant, 1644-1664. The first persecution of the Quakers by the Dutch came as a result of Magistrate Gildersleeve's activity. During the Dutch-Indian War, he lived in Newtown, L. I., as one of the first proprietors and magistrates, 1652-1656. In 1664, when New York was captured by the English, he was appointed colonial commissioner by Connecticut. However, by the Duke of York's patent he became a royal subject once more. In 1669, he was one of that notable gathering of deputies from the English towns of Long Island who framed a petition, which fairly breathed the spirit of liberty manifested in the Declaration of Independence later. Lovelace, the Royal governor, had oppressed the towns severely. Mr. Gildersleeve, as deputy of Hempstead, refused absolutely to pay taxes without representation. It is impossible to say what would have happened, if, in 1673, New York had not been captured by the Dutch. In 1674, New York was restored to the English. Richard Gildersleeve was deputy to New York to the Dutch Council. He also held very many offices of trust and honor in the town besides figuring in many of the exchanges of vast tracts of land. His main occupation lasting through life was that of surveyor. He was a Puritan of Puritans, fiery, and intolerant, strict and harsh (American Ancestry of Philip Gildersleeve.-Cont.} in his official duties, but then the times were harsh enough to try the most heroic soul amidst the early settlements of the United States. He represented the town in all its dealings with the Indians, especially with Tackapousha, Sachem of the Marsapeage Indians. His wife was born in 1601 and witnessed in 1676 the final Indian exchange. He had three children, Richard, Samuel and Anna, the wife of John Smith, Nant., who came from Nantucket.

In 1738, by father's will, left all lands and a house, west side of
Rockaway River Swamp and meadow at Hungry Harbor, both fresh and salt, together
with the land before given him. The earmark of Richard Gildersleeve was a
latch and halfpenny the foreside the off ear, 18 July 1759. In an unrecorded
deed 6 April 1751, Richard Gildersleeve, yeoman, bought for L142 in lawful New
York currency of Isaac Losee of Hempstead, all his farm with the farmhouse and
buildings in the South Woods, 40 acres bounded E & by land belonging to said
Richard Gildersleeve: W & S by the highway that meets by Thomas Frost. Wit:
James Cagwin, William Van Wyck. (Owned by direct descendant Miss Emma Jerome,
Hempstead, Long Island, New York in 1921. This was at Rum Point, now
Roosevelt, Long Island.

Sixteen men including Richard, petitioned "to lay out a highway along a
piece of common land and meadow now somewhat fenced off at the South adjoining
the east side of Aaron Burtis's land which had very good landing places for
landing and curing hay out on the salt marshes." They argued that the public
would benefit by having such a way to get at the hay when curing while at other
times there was a necessity of hanging gates also. A way was laid 3 July 1762,
four rods wife from the south end of the long lane near Henry Shaw's southerly
by Aaron Burtis's to the water by the mill tail thence along the east side of
Burtis's house down to the shell bank on the water.

The recorded deed 7 August 1762 (Miss Emma Jerome's), Elisha Gildersleeve,
an nephew of Richard Gildersleeve Jr., yeoman, owned together a certain meadow
at the South at Hungry Harbor Neck, east of James Hendrickson. The meadow in
question ran along said ditch and from said Mott's Creek to a stake standing
the east side of said ditch and from said stake etc. Elisha and Richard
agreedto divide it equally. Elisha deeded to his nephew, the southernmost
beginning at a ditch until it came to Goose Pond so called, to a creek thence
along said creek until it came to the head of a ditch that led out of Goose
Pond. Wit: Thomas Clowes, S.C.

At Hungry Harbor Neck, he had fresh and salt meadow near the highway to
the Neck and near Elisha Gildersleeve, 2 October 1765. With Henry Mott,
Richard Gildersleeve bought 10 April 1765 of Elisha and Else, his wife,
one-half into the Grist Mill, bolting mill 113 acres. John Hall, 14 May 1754
sold to John Hall Jr., 30 acres bounded south by Richard Gildersleeve while 30
March 1774, John Hall and wife Elizabeth, John Hall Sr. and wife Bathiz sold to
Morris Simonson Jr., 30 acres at the Town Spot, N. by Samuel Carmen, W. by
highway from St. George's Church to Hicks Neck, S. by Richard Gildersleeve and
E. by highway.

The veneral conduct of Hempstead during the Revolution was loyalty to King
George III. His Cousin Richard, son of George, voted at Jamaica, 5 November
1775 not to send deputies to Provincial Congress. American Minutemen and
Continental troops came to Hempstead and took away firearms from the disloyal.
Richard Jr., Presbyterian all his life, although he had his children baptized
all at one time at St. George's Episcopal Church, voted and signed the
Declaration, 19 July 1776, to obey orders of Provincial Congress and
Continental Congress. His son Stephen aged 98 when he died, always told his
children of his own family upholding the American cause. (Calender New York,
Mss. Rev. Papers, p. 183)(p .213) Note: Three of his descendants joined the
D.A.R. (D.A.R. Lineages 207,713;273,567 and 568).

The Battle of Long Island, 29 August 1776 at Brooklyn favored the British
and they occupied Long Island until 1783. He had to sign a petition to Lord
Howe and General Howe, 2 October 1776, to be restored to the King's protection.
Many others were forced to join the loyalists. (Onderdonk's Rev. Incidents of
Queens County).
His brother Jonathan was a leading Tory.
In 1780, witness deed of James and Sarah Pine to Townsend Willis of Wheat.
In 1781, witness deed of Augustine Weeks to John Weeks. Hempstead Tax list
for 1784 listed him L110 real and L56 persona; in 1788, L75 real and L25

Personal.
In 1789, the watering place at Town Spot near where the Presbyterian
Church did stand, running S to SE corner of Richard Gildersleeve's fence
extending 2 rods each side of the brook to Stephen Pettit's tan yard; also SE
corner of Nehemiah Sammis's mowing ground up to Benjamin Lester's fence on the
Plains at Clay Pits - referred to in highway records. In 1796, two highways
were laid out from the NW corner of Isaac Pettit's hollow lot then east on
north side and so easterly past Richard Gildersleeve 4 rods in fron of his
house, Joseph Diteman' house to NW corner of George Rhodes farm and so across
the pond.

Jr., John Cummins.

He was in the group of puritans led by Rev. Richard Denton, but later became a Presbyterian. He moved to Newtown, LI, in 1652, where he was among the purchasers of land from the Indians in 1656. He was appointed Magistrate by Peter Stuyvesant, a position he again held in Hempstead in 1658. Shortly after its formation, Heemstede (Hempstead) fell under the gaze of the leaders of the Connecticut colony, who had long hoped to incorporate Long Island. In 1662, Connecticut sent representatives to ask the English towns on Long Island to change their allegiance to the Connecticut colony, but Richard Gildersleeve refused, and remained loyal to the colony to which he had sworn an oath. He protested the exploitations of Colonial Governors, both Dutch and English. He signed the Hempstead Petition of 1669, demanding "No taxation without representation!"

Richard Gildersleeve has been widely reported to have married Joanna Appleton (1601-aft.1677) in 1620. She is alleged to have been the daughter of Thomas Appleton (1539-16 May 1603) who married in 1572 Mary Isaacke (1552-11 Jun 1613). This line extends back to William D'Aubigney (1175-1220) Crusader, named in the Magna Carta, and further back to Charlemagne. Unfortunately, Thomas Appleton did not have a daughter named Joanna. He and Mary had 9 children between 1572 and 1588. Those who survived were listed in his will. There was no Joanna. Connecticut Genealogy, Vol 3, p. 1023, published 1911-2, established this myth. It was garbled from a Latin rendition of the 1635 purchase by a Richard Gildersleeve and John Borcham, of the Appleton Manor in Groton and Combs, County Suffolk, England, from Samuel Appleton and wife Judith; Thomas Gostlyn and wife Jane or Joanna, and Stephen Keable and wife Mariam. - Colonial Families of Long Island, New York, and Connecticut, Herbert F Seversmith, 1948, v.3, p.1158 I have also seen Gildersleeve's wife listed as Experience. But I have seen no evidence for this claim. A Richard Gildersleeve of Aldeburgh, widower, married 18 Apr 1618 Barbara Patrick, a widow. This is not likely to be the Richard who moved to Massachusetts in 1635, since he was approximately 17 years old in 1618. This is more likely the purchaser of the Appleton Manor in 1635, perhaps the father or an uncle of the Richard of Massachusetts. Richard of Groton died in 1653, his wife was Mary.

Anna Gildersleeve (1629-before 1671) married about 1646 John "Nan" Smith (1625?-1694) And John Nan Smith remained a close neighbor of Anna's father Richard Gildersleeve, who apparently married John's widowed mother. John married secondly, 1672, Elizabeth Wickes, daughter of John and Mary Wickes of Warwick, Rhode Island, and widow of Richard Townsend. John's will made 2 July 1694, proved 6 Sep 1694, called himself the "son-in-law" of Richard Gildersleeve and used the same term to identify Richard Townsend, Jr, the son of his second wife. This leads us to believe the term "son-in-law" would be in modern terms "step-son," giving further evidence that his widowed mother had married Richard Gildersleeve. 1.

***********The Gyldensleve-Gildersleeve Family is one of the oldest English families on record. The surname was originally Gyldensleve (from the Middle English gyldenesleve, meaning ‘golden sleeve', or "sleeves heavily braided with gold"), an insignia of office in the early Court of Flanders, before the Norman conquest, 1066, and later was introduced into the Court of England, probably through the influence of Matilda of Flanders, wife of William the Conqueror. The coat of arms is charged with a gold 'maunch' (a lady's sleeve, given to the victor in the tournament). Personal dress was not admitted in heraldry excepting the single instance of the maunch, described by old authors as "manche mal taillée," from its uncouth shape.
The first mention of the surname Gyldensleve can be found in Vol. 5 of "Herald and Genealogist", page 100, where the name appears as 'Gervase Paganel de Gyldensleve, cup bearer to Henry II, and then Richard I, from 1165 - 1200, who married Isabella, daughter of Robert de Bellemont, Earl of Leicester.' If we translate this as "Gervase Paganel of the 'Gilded Sleeves', the inference is that the 'Gilded Sleeves' had been the insignia of office of the cup bearer before this time. From 1165, back through a direct line of the four Lords of Dudley, appears the name of 'Gervase Paganel, Lord of Dudley', cup bearer to Edward the Confessor from 1042 to 1065, but nothing indicating an insignia of office.
From 1042, the Paganel family can be traced directly back to the time of Ahlmend, the Old Saxon King of Kent, 775 to 795.¹ The book Genealogical and Family History of the State of Connecticut, by an editorial staff including William R. Cutter, A.M., says that this possible ancestry is very much to be doubted, however (Vol. III, p. 1207).
All truly English names were invented later, in about 1340-1360. At that time, the Crown raised revenue by means of a Poll Tax—a flat-rate tax upon every adult male. Therefore, every man had to be identified. To distinguish between men of the same baptismal name in the same community (John, William, Robert, etc.), additional descriptions had to be conjured, for example, Black, White, Smith, Shepherd. Normally, readily understood adjectives were applied, so that there is no reason to suppose that two men of the same name, but from different places, were related.
So if the first Gildersleeve wasn't the cup-bearer to a king, he could just have been a man who was known to his neighbours by this peculiarity of dress (golden sleeves), so the term was applied to him—no different than calling him "Fancypants." However, most genealogists agree that it's hard to believe that two men, in different parts of the realm, would make the same fashion faux pas, so there is good reason to suspect that all those who now bear the name are descended from one man who lived about 650 years ago, and dressed a lot like Liberace. But as to whether he was the cup beareer for the King, or just a guy who like to dress with 'bling', nobody knows.
The first recorded use of the surname of Gyldersleve is with a man named ROGER GYLDENSLEVE, a land-holder in the county of Norfolk in the 'Hundred Rolls' list of 1273. But after that, there is no known documentation of that name—or any variation—for the next 150 years.
Then in 1421, JOHN GILDENSLEVE, Fellow of the Holy Cross Atteburg, is recorded in the county of Norfolk (according to Blomefield and Parkin's "History of Norfolk").
Then in the Subsidy Returns for 1524, there are six Gildersleeves: Jeffrey, John, Richard, Robert, Thomas and William. They resided in different places throughout England, like Suffolk at Blakenham, Elmsett, Grundisburgh, Mickfield, Stoke by Nayland, Thornham Magna, and Wetheringsett.
In 1568, Gildersleeves are recorded at Bricett, Brundish, Newton in Stow, Grundisburgh, Wetheringsett.
Then a JOHN GILDERSLEEVE is recorded as rector of Little Cressington, County of Norfolk, in 1588.
After that, the name of Gildersleeve appears very frequently in the records of marriage and wills in Norfolk and Suffolk counties. But it's hard to compose a reliable pedigree, because most parish registers begin only in about 1580, and there were few other sources available for common folk. But here's a list of the names that do exist, and some of those records that could be linked.

Our direct family lineage can be traced back to this area of Suffolk, but the identities of our particular ancestors are almost impossible to pinpoint. Commonwealth Probates Vol. II, 1652-3 Part III, p. 273, states that the will of Richard Gildersleeve of Groton, Suffolk, Dec 12, 1652 (Brent, 368) was probated on May 7th. But there was also a ROBERT GILDERSLEEVE, born about 1544, who married BARBARA FAIRCHILD (b. Hedenham, England) in 1564,¹ Then there's RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE, baptized in 1571. There's also a THOMAS GILDERSLEEVE, son of Thomas, born in 1561.
A RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE was born about 1566 in Little Waldingford, Suffolk, England. On October 17, 1591, Richard married married ANNA SWAYNE in Suffolk. It's hard to say if this is the right Richard, but the date and place seem to work to make him the father of...
OUR DIRECT ANCESTOR, RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE
Many Gildersleeves sailed to the American Colonies the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands.
RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE (1601 - 1681), was one of the first Gildersleeves to emigrate to America. (A prominent professional genealogist has record of the baptism of a Richard Gildersleeve in Suffolk, but because of the lack of specific identification as provided by supplemental proof, and also because there may have been more than one Richard Gildersleeve in the area, and, most of all, because of the fee—150 pounds—asked by this genealogist, members of the Gildersleeve family have refused to purchase this information.)
Richard is said to have been born at Aldeburgh Parish, on the North Sea Coast of England, in County Suffolk, in 1601 (on page 149 of the Topocraphical Dictionary English Emigrants to New England, 1620-1650). The church can be seen in the photo at the top of the page. Religion would play a huge part in Richard's life.
THE MYSTERY OF MRS. GILDERSLEEVE

Appleton
ANYWAY, BACK TO OUR STORY...
The grave of Richard Gildersleeve today (read all about him in the New England Magazine, from February, 1893, Vol. VII, No. 6 .
Richard and his family joined the great Puritan exodus of the Winthrop fleet (1630-1640), during which 20,000 people sailed for America to escape the autocratic rule of Charles the First. According to "Gaylords and Gildersleeves," by Helen Gaylord Gildersleeve, from 1989 (page 135): "They had a 'happy voyage' of six to eight weeks, contrasting with less fortunate ones that were from three to five months." The family then arrived in the American Colonies in 1634, at Watertown, Massachussetts.
The Puritans in Watertown, however, had established a theocracy which was even more intolerant than the Brits', and dissenters—including Richard and his family—left Massachusetts for religious freedom in Wethersfield, Connecticut, around 1636. (Richard seems to have been a restless spirit, for he is listed as one of the founders of seven different towns.)
The first winter in Connecticut was a time of suffering and hardship, because a boat with supplies for the immigrants froze in the Connecticut River, and never arrived. Beyond the weather, an Indian War, along with wolves, bears, and catamounts, threatened their lives.
Richard became a surveyor, as evindenced by the record of the court held Sept. 1, 1636, directing him to survey and inventory the estate of John Oldham, who had been killed by the Indians; also their records show that Gildersleeve was owner of 255 acres of land in that settlement. But before long he was on the move again. In 1639, he was on the list of the original settlers of New Haven Colony, moving to Stamford in 1641. He was elected in 1643 as deputy to New Haven Court, and helped to organize the United Colonies, the germ of the future United States.
Almost fifty citations from Oyster Bay town records testify to the active career of "Mr." Gildersleeve. He was one of the fifty original proprietors of Hempstead, Long Island, as listed in "Ye Mouseaton Book." He was one of the first to make allegiance to the English, being admitted as a freeman of Connecticut and appointed colonial commisssioner at Hempstead in 1644, and was Magistrate under the Dutch Governors of New York from 1644 to 1664, when New York was captured by the English.
In 1652, he moved again—to Middlesburg (later Newtown), Long Island, which he surveyed by Dutch orders, and was Magistrate. He then returned to Hempstead where he was magistrate in 1658. (July 10, 1658 - It is ordered and agreede by general vote ye Mr. Richard Gildersleve, according to appointment is to go to Mannatens to agree with ye Governor concerning the tytles and therein is ordered not to exceede one hundred scheepels [sic] of wheate [and if required] it is to be delivered at the towne habour and the charge of his journey is to be defrayed by the towne.)
Events in Richard's career which led to the American Revolution were his leadership in exposing Captain Scott's conspiracy to take over Long Island, as recorded in Hartford in 1664, and helping lead the revolt against the Dutch; Under the Duke's Laws, he was elected constable in 1668, and was attorney for the town 1665-1677. Due to the Duke's Laws, he started the organized agitation for self-government, representation, checking patents within patents of land, and for the rights of Englishmen. He and his son Richard were signers of the Hempstead Petition of 1669, the first recorded document of "No taxation without representation" in the English colonies; and lastly, his long and active fight in defending the rights of his town, and the inherited "rights of an Englishman," in the "patents within patents" hearings and lawsuits before the Governor's Council and the various courts of New York.
At some point after his immigration (maybe after getting driven out of Watertown by the Puritans), Richard converted and became a Presbyterian. However, Hempstead was not exempt from the religious troubles. In this period, Quakers wandered through the town and by holding meetings and making converts.
O'Callaghan in his 'History of New Netherlands' relates this account: "Richard Gildersleeve, a magistrate of Hempstead was one of the most prominent persecutors of the new sect. To hold the 'garments of those who stoned the saints' was not glory enough for him. He pursued them with proclamations and inflicted on them and their friends, pains and penalties without end. Hodshone, whilst peacably walking in an orchard was seized and brought before this man, who committed him and then proceeded to the Manhattans to acquaint Stuyveseant with the fact. Returning in a short time with the Fiscaal and a guard of musketeers, they seized Hodshone's papers and Bible, then pinioned their prisoner, and thus kept him during the night and the following day, etc."
Henry Onderdonk, Jr., in his "Quakers of Hempstead," gives this account: "There lived in the village, Richard Gildersleeve, a Justice of the Peace with Stuyveseant's commission in his pocket. He had perhaps been notified to be on the alert to put a stop to such irregularities. Be that as it may, as soon as he was aware of the intended meeting, he issued a warrent to the constable to arrest the preacher. The officer arrived on the ground a little before the hour for the meeting, and finding Hodgson "pacing the orchard alone in quiet meditation," he laid hold of him at once, and haled him to the magistrate, who left him a prisoner in his own house, while he (the justice) went to the Presbyterian Church (Mr. Denton's) for morning worship. But the wily Quaker outwitted the magistrate; for during his absence the prisoner by his loud and energetic action (probably in preaching from a window), had collected a large crowd of listeners, 'who staid and heard the truth declared'" Mr. Gildersleeve was so annoyed, on his return home from worship to find his dwelling had answered all the purpose of a chapel, that his prisoner had so favorable an opportunity for spreading his doctrines, and that he could not stop his mouth, that he instantly wrote a mittimus for his removal to another house, for Hempstead did not then boast of a lockup or house of detention."
Richard, now in his eighties, was on the Hempstead 1683 tax list. For a time he lived in Stamford, and he was one of the largest land holders. (Read all about him in The New England Magazine, from February, 1893, Vol. VII, No. 6 .)
Richard died in @1685 in Hempstead, Nassau, Long Island, New York. He had several children:
CHILDREN OF RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE
ELIZABETH GILDERSLEEVE, b: @ 1624. Married twice, to WILLIAM LAWRENCE and our ancestor, JEREMIAH WOOD , between 1642 - 1644.
RICHARD GILDERSLEEVE JR. was born 1626 in Suffolk County, Shire, England. (Source: International Genealogical Index, 1994 Edition, Version 3.4. Census information from Norfolk County, England), and died 21 May 1691 in Hempstead, Nassau Co., Long Island, NY. He married a woman named DORCAS WILLIAMS. Note: "Richard Gildersleeve III, was an able son of an able father, and closely associated with him as town official and proprietor in the continued battle against the evils of exploitation by the provincial authorities that blighted the growth of New York, which after the Revolution was a weak fourth among the states notwithstanding advantages of position and of resources, as well as settlers." Richard Gildersleeve the second first appears in the records for1652 when he helped to build a cottage roofed with thatch, and where he gathered his first harvest. He was a Sergeant in the 1656 Dutch-Indian War. He was one of the fifty-six men who bought the Newtown land in 1656 from the Indians. He became proprietor of Hempstead and then surveyor, tax collector, town drummer, and town clerk. In 1664 he wrote and signed the Hempstead Petition to Connecticut Colony, revolting against the Dutch, however, the uke's Laws took over the town. He wrote and signed with his father the Hempstead Petition 1669, "No taxation without representation". In 1678, he was elected constable. He was a Town Clerk for 30 years, and acquired considerable property. His will was probated at Jamaica, New York. He and his father were Presbyterians, having been Puritans in England and New England.

Wood
Their daughter, ELIZABETH GILDERSLEEVE (b. @1620), married JEREMIAH WOOD in Yorkshire, the son of EDMUND WOOD, a Puritan associate of Richard's who had come to America around the same time.
The Gildersleeve clan then went about controlling the town of Hempstead: The town records show that on May 12, 1680 the old meeting house and the town fort were sold at auction to Richard Gildersleeve---excepting the part of the fort that stood on the land of Jeremy Wood. Richard paid two pounds, 12 shillings for the property. Jeremiah was elected townsman at Hempstead on February 3, 1662, in company with brother-in-laws John Smith and Richard Gildersleeve, Jr.
The Colony of New York belonged to the Dutch, but King Charles II gave the land to his brother, the Duke of York, in 1664. When the British came to take the colony, the Dutch, who hated their Governor Stuyvesant, quickly surrendered to them. The Dutch retook the colony in 1673, but the British regained it in 1674, and the Gildersleeves kept their control of town affairs.
Jeremiah and Elizabeth Wood had several children:
KIDS OF JEREMIAH WOOD AND ELIZABETH GILDERSLEEVE
JEREMIAH WOOD, JR. married a woman named SUSANAH. He was given some land by his grandfather Gildersleeve, to be his after Mr. Gildersleeve's decease. Jeremiah Jr. died in October of 1710.
JOSEPH WOOD, married EUNICE JARVIS (b: ABT 1662/1663 in Huntington, Long Island Co., NY) on 15 Dec 1681 (Children listed later).
ELIZABETH WOOD married a man who was possibly named Thurstone (a grandchild is named in Jeremiah's will by that surname). She died before 1684, leaving children.
JONAS WOOD was born about 1657 and lived in Huntington, NY. He married LYDIA SMITH or ELIZABETH DURHAM in @ 1680. In 1693 he moved to Elizabethtown, NJ and was elected to the General Assembly there, then reelected the next year.

The Gildersleeves remained on the east coast for many years. Two were Tories, and twenty were recorded for the colonist's side in the American Revolution.
Eventually, many of them made their way west. Fortunately, they have stopped wearing the golden sleeves.
